NoneSuch Space presents the photography and vivid Giclee prints of hand cut collages by Bay Area artist, Maria Gilardin. Her work ranges from spoofs on automobile culture, to corporate takeover of farms and dreams of escaping techno-economic absurdity.
Also included in the exhibition is a photo and sound collage installation presenting Maria's collaboration with poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Earwax Productions. In the original audio compositions, Ferlinghetti juxtaposes autobiography, commentary, and poetry in a highly personal acoustic exploration of what he terms “the current state of American consciousness.”
Gilardin is an investigative journalist, peace and social justice worker, radio producer and host of Time of Useful Consciousness (TUC) radio. Gilardin is known in the Bay Area for her cultural and political critique of current events. The exhibit runs July 23-August 23, with an opening reception August 1 from 6-10 pm.
